Speakeasy Brewing has always drawn its inspiration from the Prohibition era, when gangsters and bootleggers laid low in their favorite blind pig establishment with a pint of contraband. At this weekend's 15th Anniversary party, however, you don't have to be Al Capone or Lucky Luciano to get through the door. In fact, you can simply reserve a free ticket from Eventbrite.

For $3 a pop, you can try special Speakeasy brews including a 15th Anniversary Triple IPA, a wet-hopped version of Big Daddy IPA, Scarlett Red Rye, and Butchertown Black. They'll also have live music blaring through the brewery and an arsenal of food trucks including Southern Sandwich, All Good Pizza, La Laguna Taqueria, Ritual Roasters, Kasa Indian Eatery and more. The brewery also promises "rad surprises," which could mean anything from a magician to a bookmobile. But, we're thinking it probably involves beer.

If you'd like to celebrate in style, a $25 VIP ticket gets you in an hour early, 3 beer tokens, a commemorative pint glass and poster, and 15% off merchandise for the day. Check out the details below. Rum runners, be sure to leave your tommy guns at home.

Where: Speakeasy Brewery, 1195 Evans Ave.

When: Aug. 25th, 2-7 p.m. (VIP hour from 1-2 p.m.)

What: Great beer, food, and music. Laugh in the face of prohibitionist law while sipping a Triple IPA.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
